The Free Shipping discount does not include Priority International, UPS Express International or UPS Expedited International shipping or any shipping upgrades from standard mail. International orders will be shipped via First Class International Mail unless Priority Mail or UPS is paid for.
Our current processing time is approximately 3-4 weeks. This time does not include the shipping time(package in transit). Each order is handmade from start to finish once you place your order and we need this time to skillfully craft & prepare your order.
Shipping times are estimated, can not be guaranteed, as the USPS operates independently from Harbor Hound Co. Actual delivery time will depend on the shipping method you choose. Please note, this time does not include production/lead time.
If you need your order to be expedited through the processing time(time I need to make your order), you can purchase the Rush My Order upgrade to get your order pushed up in the production line and then choose the appropriate shipping method at checkout for quicker transit time.
We ship worldwide via USPS mail. First Class mail includes tracking information to addresses within the United States, Canada and select countries, but not insurance. It is the responsibility of the buyer to determine if tracking information is available to their destination. If you would like to include insurance on your package, up to $100 value, we recommend upgrading to Priority mail. Priority Mail takes 1-3 days for domestic shipments and up to10 business days to international addresses. Priority Mail is also used for domestic parcels over 1 pound, or for those that would like insurance included on their parcel. Insurance is through USPS, not Harbor Hound Co. Harbor Hound Co. IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ITEMS LOST IN THE MAIL.
